    330CI 2003
  1. Well SWMBO has decided that her 330 vert has to go after 10 years as the suspension is too hard for her and we are not getting any younger. She has her eye on a Mercedes G class and we have a part ex offer but it seems low. So would the collective be able to give me an idea of a reasonable price, autotrader seems to go from dirt cheap to stupid in the pricing. She's a 2003 330ci, 75000 miles in silver with a navy roof and grey leather interior. We have a part service history with a full fluid swap and regular services whilst we have had her. Last year the head gasket was replaced along with the radiator, water pump, water pump pulley, belts, header tank, top and bottom radiator hoses, new oil cap, oil filter assembly seal, Disa cleaned and flap changed, ICV was cleaned, CCV system replaced, rear shocks replaced with upgraded top mounts and strengthening bars and finally the 2 inlet hoses have been changed. The bad bits are that the drivers seat bolster has some wear and could do with a repair, the wheels are desperate for a refurb and the brakes will probably need an overall in the next couple of years.
  2. I need to change the bonnet badge as it’s loosing the coloured areas . Is it held down with double sided rape and a couple of locating pins? I cant see any screw holes underneath Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Open vert roof and slide out 2 little prices of plastic at the back to expose the holes. Lift into place and close up the 4 clamps. 2 on the windscreen and 2 in the rear quarters behind little access panels Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The 50’s kid has been invaluable this summer on my marathon repair sessions ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I had all the coils and plugs changed about 3 months ago before the head was sorted amongst lots of other things ☹️ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. As some of may have read we’ve spent a fair bit on the car this year and now we have some new engine error codes. Does anyone have any ideas what is the cause of these errors ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’ve recently done the coolant system iverhaul and the oil filter housing seal replacement. The 50skid videos on you tube helped a lot. Have you checked the radiator? Mine was sagging badly but could only be seen from underneath the car Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. No codes on the car, so I cleaned the sensor and checked that it was plugged in properly. No warning lights at all this week so far Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Great, thank you for that Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. So wheels off, unscrew the retaining bolt and clean the end of the sensor? What did you use to clean it ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Did you get to the bottom of your problem, mine has just come back on again Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I thought it had gone away but the car passed its mot and when driven out of the bay over the brake rollers the light popped up again. Looks like I’ll have to take the wheels off the back for a poke about Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. So after getting the car back from the head repair I set about changing the rear shock absorbers today as one was leaking. I’ve changed the over and added the strengthening plates as well. Once the car came off the trolley jack I started it up and the handbrake warning light is on red and another in the centre is lit upon yellow. Triangle in a circle. Release the handbrake and the warning light changes from red to yellow both still lit. I’ve tidied my tools away and restarted the car to put the roof up and the centre one is out and the handbrake light behaves normally red then Off when the handbrake is off. Did I screw the abs system up because I jacked the car up with the handbrake on ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Collected the car and it is lovely to drive again.. Wallet is £1400 lighter though ☹️ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Had a call from the garage, head was warped slightly, it’s now been skimmed and is heading back for refitting. Hopefully we will get her back later this week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
